The credo a few years back was “save the cheerleader, save the world”. But a new Android game wants to start a thing called “shoot the celebrities, save the world”. Okay, they’re not exactly saying we actually shoot the celebrities, but it’s probably a statement about our pop culture and celebrity-obsessed culture that the “enemy” in this game are actual stars (not the celestial kind) but in this case, they are aliens. Are you ready to shoot some stars in Shooting Stars?
The basic “plot” for the game is that you need to protect the earth from these planet-invading aliens by shooting them down. And in case the actual celebrities might sue them or something, they’ve used different code names that are still kinda obvious, like Justin Bieleber, Kanye East, Starlette Brohanson, etc. Someone sure had a blast coming up with punny names for the star aliens. You can collect up to 50 ultimate attacks and superfoods that will help you shoot them down, and if you stack the superfoods, you can create ultimate destruction.
The game has two modes: Card Hunt and Daily Challenge. With the former, you can collect 16 cards to keep and with the latter, every challenge is different, and so every game is different as well. You will get to battle 20 celebrity bosses and challenge other players as well in a global and daily highscore battle. And if all that isn’t enough, you’ll also get to ride a hoverboard, at least digitally, so that’s something, if you’re a fan of that kind of thing.
As an initial release promo, you can get Shooting Stars from the Google Play Store for just $0.99 for the next two weeks. After that, it will be $2.99. But that is all in already, no in-app purchases anymore. So let’s go and shoot some celebrities, we mean alien stars, now!
